Our McKissick Museum: Telling the Story of Southern Life
May 13, 2013

Our McKissick Museum is not only an art museum but one dedicated to examining and celebrating community, culture, and the environment. http://www.artsandsciences.sc.edu/mckissickmuseum
The museum has been working to increase the visibility and recognition of its collections by mounting off-site exhibits and programs to connect the people of South Carolina with information and ideas. Although many supporters see the museum as a center for cultural, folk art and high art collections and exhibitions, the museum also has many impressive collections in natural history.
Follow the progress of the project team on the blog. Read about their discoveries as they “mine” McKissick’s natural science collections! As their dean, I sincerely hope they find gold although I doubt we could “deaccession it” to fund other museum programs!
